Podge Henry Vice President for Welfare and Equality

I’ve never been more excited to start anything as much as Welfare & Equality Officer. Firstly I want to thank all the people who put their faith in me and voted. I want to follow up on Cody’s work but I also have some ideas of my own I would like to implement. I plan to work closely with the library and campus residence. I want to find a system that would reduce fines on short term loans over exam season. With campus residence, I would hope to design some sort of appealing system for fines during inspections and also explore the idea of an ‘emergency form’ for students who bring back guests that have not been signed in to prevent people getting stranded outside for the night. Finally I want to bring more awareness to sexual, physical and mental health. Building on this years SHAG week and Helping Hand week but also working closely with both the Clubs Officer and the Socs Officer to expand on ‘Give it a go week’ to get students to the best possible start next year. Above all else I want to bethere for students in times of need and help them to my best ability. I will give this role everything I have and I  cannot wait to get started. See you all in September.
